Need a electric starter for a 1971 Honda CL450

Post by dvcruz » Wed Jan 03, 2018 4:25 pm

Looking for a starter for a '71 CL450. I believe the same starter was used from '68 - '77 for CL and CB models as well as 360 cc and 500 cc models, so hopefully this shouldn't be too hard to find. Unfortunately, the one I have somehow managed to chew up four wires on the armature. In 50 years of biking, I've never seen that happen before so I'm not sure what happened there.
If you have a starter that might work and would like to finally get it out of your junk drawer, please let me know.
Thank you.

Back in the San Jose area for now...
